Ammo Delivery


The main regular physical activity was not the firing of the cannon, but getting ammo ready to fire, and into the ammo bunker. The Battery had a 5 or 6 man Ammo Section, who daily would deliver scores of boxes to each gun section, for them to open and fuse. The ammo section was also responsible for getting rid of the mountain of garbage that was generated in the process of breaking out ammo. The empty boxes and fiber tubes inside seemed to be double the volume of what had been delivered. All of it was picked up by hand, taken outside the wire and burned. Art Rameriz, and Jeff Palmer behind him were in the ammo section.
